Abstract [en]

This essay was written during the spring term of 2011 and focuses on the national heritage areas in Sweden, with a case study which analyzes the processes around the controversial hotel and congress center Stockholm Waterfront in central Stockholm. The purpose is to understand what the term national heritage area actually means, what protection they hold and how they affect the surrounding area when changes occur.


Plans for a new congress center in Stockholm have existed since the 1990s, but the actual planning process begun in the year 2000. Several proposals have been presented during the years, but economical difficulties have stopped two of them before the so called Projekt Klara, which today is known as Stockholm Waterfront, could become reality. The project has generated a lot of criticism since some claim that the buildings are intruding on the national heritage area that Stockholm’s inner city and Djurgården form, and the city planning debate has partly because of this become more active than before. The perhaps most important aspect has been whether the new buildings have caused significant damage on the national heritage, which is hard to determine since it is a question of subjectivity.
